So, what will the new Guv do for the 613,000?

Governor McCrory says he favors a new North Carolina law that would require all voters to show a photo ID before they are allowed to vote. He also said on the day of his swearing in that he wanted North Carolina to be “a state undivided.” According to John Frank’s “Morning Memo” in Raleigh News & Observer [1], however:

“A new report from the State Board of Elections found as many as 613,000 voters, or 9.25 percent of the North Carolina’s voters, may not have a state issued driver’s licensed or identification card.”

So, tell us Governor: What’s the plan? How will you make us “a state undivided” if one of the first things you plan to do is make it much harder for one-in-11 adults to exercise a core constitutional right?
